My Favorite Michigan Football Players
These are not the greatest, just my favorites; how excited Frank Beckmann would get saying their names played a big role. Others considered (but not mentioned below): Ty Law, Mercury Hayes, Elvis Grbac, Ian Gold, Anthony "A-Train" Thomas, and so many more. For the record, Desmond Howard was slightly before my time.
- 1.Charles WoodsonMy Heisman.
- 2.Tsmonga BiakabatukOhio State, 1995. Tyrone Wheatley, you were great too.
- 3.Drew HensonSorry Tom Brady, Drew was electric.
- 4.Jake LongHe was a great left tackle, but I struck him out more than five times on the diamond. I loved telling that story. Will some NFL team please sign him?
- 5.Rob RenesJust a bad man.
- 6.David TerrellThere are so many receivers to choose from, but I'll never forget the day he had in the 2000 Orange Bowl beating Alabama.
- 7.Larry FooteI think he made every single tackle his senior year.
- 8.Jerame TumanGreise to Tuman won us a National Championship.
- 9.Glen SteeleMy favorite defensive end. Sorry Lamar Woodley
- 10.Denard RobinsonAlthough it was a dark period in Michigan football history, he made it worth watching (especially Notre Dame 2011).
